Wordsmith Jaine Austen´s ship has finally come in. Her new teaching gig on a fancy cruise line nabs her a free vacation--and access to a 24-hour buffet! But sooner than you can say ´´bon voyage,´´ Jaine´s all-expenses-paid trip to the Mexican Riviera seems destined to be a wreck… Things are already off to a rocky start when Jaine discovers a stowaway amidst her luggage--her persnickety cat Prozac. Jaine´s sinking sensation grows stronger at dinner, where she meets chatty Emily Pritchard, a wealthy seventy-year-old who´s traveling with her two nephews. Jaine can´t help noticing the tension among them, especially when the cruise´s charming--and sleazy--British dancer, Graham, whisks Emily out onto the dance floor. Soon Emily is accepting Graham´s invitations to every social event on the ship. Two nights later the bubbly couple announces their engagement, but the news is quickly overshadowed the next morning by the discovery of Graham´s body with an ice pick protruding from his chest… Between hiding a furry fugitive, flirting with Emily´s nephew Robbie, and baiting the hook for a clever murderer, Jaine is about to dive into her most dangerous case yet… 1.

At 63, former jazz musician Wade Lovett finds himself something of a trailer park Lothario carrying on affairs with three different women. But when circumstances prompt Carol Smitzky to make a compelling case for a marriage arrangement, he agrees. The next morning, he visits girlfriend number two, Peggy MacCallister, to tell her the news - and finds her lying dead on her kitchen floor. Shortly after Peggy´s death, Wade is surprised to learn that she left him guardianship of her prized cat, Prince Albert. Even more surprising, she named Wade as beneficiary of her life insurance, which provokes her son to demand an autopsy. As a natural death seems less and less likely, Wade becomes the prime suspect in her murder, forcing him to investigate the crime himself. Was Peggy killed by one of her two children, the park manager, a mystery second boyfriend, or was it Wade´s third paramour, Sue Mullins? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Husmann.

Instead, she found out she was pregnant with twins! Since Crystal and her husband, Ed, already had a two-year-old daughter, Abigail, she couldn´t imagine why mothering twins would be all that different. But, after a family vacation at the beach, she finds out that her twins have a life-threatening condition called twin to twin transfusion syndrome. That means that Baby B is transfusing blood (disproportionately) to Baby A.Her OB says that Crystal is too high-risk to let out of his sight, so he sends her to the fifth floor of the Houston Medical Center for the duration of her pregnancy.

She soon finds out as she embarks on an emotional roller coaster - from late-night emergency ultrasounds to hospital baby blessings, sprinkled with comic relief from nurses and hospital staff.Twin to Twin is a raw and inspirational story filled with tenderness, vulnerability, and humor.

Elle Harrison is back! She and her pals Jen, Becky, and Susan travel to Mexico where Jen has arranged cosmetic surgery, after which she will recover in a plush hotel suite.

When the room is later occupied by another patient, Elle finds her brutally mutilated body on that same balcony. Police question Elle as the last person to see these women alive. Their doctor also takes an interest in Elle; a woman staying at the hotel asks Elle to help her fend off a creepy stalker; a veiled woman sneaks into Elle´s suite at night; and her late husband, Charlie, reappears (or Elle imagines that he does) when Elle gets pushed under water in the ocean and nearly drowns.

When I can´t find time for my muscular sexpot of a boyfriend, he takes it into his own capable hands to make time.... These days I´m just so busy with everything. No matter how hard I try, it´s a struggle to make time for my boyfriend, Greg, given that I´m working at all hours of the day at a financial firm in order to roll in the dough. It´s sad, really.... In a lot of ways, I owe a lot of my sexual identity to Greg for taking me under his wing, so to speak. He was my first real boyfriend after a young adulthood of being raised by sexually repressive conservatives, and Greg was the person who really first helped me embrace being gay. A large part of why I work so much, though, is because I want the best life possible for the two of us, and as I´m leaving the office late one evening, I try not to let myself feel too bad about it. That is, until suddenly I´m kidnapped and thrown into a van from right off of the street, and taken to an unknown facility scared out of my wits. When I next see light, I´m in a vacant brick room with a dirty concrete floor. And it just so happens that my kidnapper has some very sadistic things in mind for me.... Warning: This book contains lots of hot sex, drama, and adult language. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Veronica Heart.

From Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman to sit on the United States Supreme Court, comes this fascinating book about the history and evolution of the highest court in the land. Out of Order sheds light on the centuries of change and upheaval that transformed the Supreme Court from its uncertain beginnings into the remarkable institution that thrives and endures today. From the early days of circuit-riding, when justices who also served as trial judges traveled thousands of miles per year on horseback to hear cases, to the changes in civil rights ushered in by Earl Warren and Thurgood Marshall; from foundational decisions such as Marbury vs. Madison to modern-day cases such as Hamdi vs. Rumsfeld, Justice O’Connor weaves together stories and lessons from the history of the Court, charting turning points and pivotal moments that have helped define our nation’s progress. With unparalleled insight and her unique perspective as a history-making figure, Justice O’Connor takes us on a personal exploration, painting vivid pictures of Justices in history, including Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., one of the greatest jurists of all time; Thurgood Marshall, whose understated and succinct style would come to transform oral argument; William O. Douglas, called ´´The Lone Ranger” because of his impassioned and frequent dissents; and John Roberts, whom Justice O’Connor considers to be the finest practitioner of oral argument she has ever witnessed in Court. We get a rare glimpse into the Supreme Court’s inner workings: how cases are chosen for hearing; the personal relationships that exist among the Justices; and the customs and traditions, both public and private, that bind one generation of jurists to the next - from the seating arrangements at Court lunches to the fiercely competitive basketball games played in the Court Building’s top-floor gymnasium, the so-called ´´highest court in the land.” Wise, candi 1.

Shelby Nichols is an average woman who is married to the only guy she ever fell for. Her life is organized and predictable, revolving around her husband and two children. All that changes the day she stops at the grocery store for some carrots. As the cashier rings up her purchases, a gunman is busy robbing the bank inside the store. When a customer grabs the robber´s mask, he is shot and everyone runs for cover. Everyone except Shelby, who finds herself face to face with the killer. The next thing she knows, she´s lying on the floor with a bullet wound to her head. Luckily, the bullet only grazes her scalp, and she doesn´t suspect any lasting affects until later, when she suddenly ´hears´ what people are thinking. With this uncanny ability, her life takes on a whole new dimension. Her kids think she´s bossy and too old to understand them, but that´s nothing compared to her husband. He says he loves her, but what is it about the redhead at work that he doesn´t want her to know? As if that isn´t enough, the gunman knows she can identify him, and he´s out to silence her forever. In her fight to stay alive, she is saved from certain death by a handsome hit-man with ties to organized crime. This pulls Shelby even deeper into danger, where knowing someone´s thoughts can not only hurt her feelings, but get her killed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wendy Tremont King.
